The Town Branch Basin is a tributary in the
West Fork of the White River Watershed

The WF-WR watershed is a 124 square mile sub-watershed of the Beaver Lake Basin and located in the Boston Mountains of Washington County, AR. The main channel of the WF-WR watershed originates near the town of Winslow, AR and flows north. It passes through several cities including Greenland and Fayetteville and forms a confluence with the White River just east of Fayetteville. The WF-WR watershed is approximately 57% forest, 33% agriculture, and 10% urban.

The West Fork of the White River counts as its tributaries, Town Branch, Cato Springs, Rock Creek, and many other contributing streams.  The West Fork joins the Middle Fork at Lake Sequoyah and, together, the streams flow for about 13 miles to the upper reaches of Beaver Lake.  Beaver Lake is the primary water supply source for the 300,000+ residents of Benton and Washington counties.  The West Fork of the White River is within a "Priority Watershed," the Upper Whiter River Basin system.
